|Sadayatana 099: Absence Of Darkness - John Tocher|
A shadow may be infinitely dark, and also of infinite degrees of absence of darkness. The beginnings and ends of shadow lie between the light and darkness and may be infinitely diminished and infinitely increased. Shadow is the means by which bodies display their form. The forms of bodies could not be understood in detail but for shadow. - Leonardo da Vinci, The Notebooks of Leonardo da Vinci III startartisttitle00:00Grove Of WhispersLive Electro-Music.com Autumn 2012-09-2259:33Digital MassCold...

|Sadayatana 144: A Kind of Fog - John Tocher|
All men are stuck in a kind of fog. They're surrounded by a wall of fog. They think this is perfectly normal, but it's not. It means that since they can't see much beyond their own little situation, they tend to vegetate. They need some immediate stimulus to keep them alert. - Colin Wilson, "The Black Room" (1975) startartisttitle00:00The Dark ConspiracyA' Phìob Mhòr07:38SonoprintGlitch Paintings13:25Vladimir HirschChiasmas16:08The Nanook IncidentThe Nanook Incident21:01Wings of an AngelThe G...

|Sadayatana 142: Quest Of Shudders - John Tocher|
This much I knew before my insistent questioning led my uncle to show me the notes which finally embarked us both on our hideous investigation. In my childhood the shunned house was vacant, with barren, gnarled and terrible old trees, long, queerly pale grass and nightmarishly misshapen weeds in the high terraced yard where birds never lingered. We boys used to overrun the place, and I can still recall my youthful terror not only at the morbid strangeness of this sinister vegetation, but at the ...

|Sadayatana 032: My Grandparents House - John Tocher|
Opened and closed the show with some 78 rpm recordings from archive.org. Vera Lynn's version of "I'm in the Mood for Love". I wanted a dirty scratchy record. Instead it had been processed to reduce the noise. So hey! I added my own noise. And then Lizzie Miles gives us "Cotton Belt Blues" to close out the show. Yea I know it's not ambient music. If I could explain why this works I would be a writer instead of dj'ing this show...

|Sadayatana 155: The Early Days - John Tocher|
Only the silent, sleepy, staring houses in the backwoods can tell all that has lain hidden since the early days; and they are not communicative, being loath to shake off the drowsiness which helps them forget. Sometimes one feels that it would be merciful to tear down these houses, for they must often dream. - H. P.

|Sadayatana 067: Beast People - John Tocher|
Show starts with a collage and looping of tracks by Universos Virtuales (fantastic!) and generally moves into drone territory and layering of samples taken from the Librivox recording of H.G. Wells' "The Island of Dr. Moreau". The samples were woven into the mix via a script that selected then at random then delayed the selection and playing of the next sample by a random interval. It worked well but you can hear a sample colliding with the voice over / podcast id...

|Sadayatana 066: Time Zero - John Tocher|
This one fashioned from tracks selected at random 10 minutes before show time. Not random exactly but picked via some secret intelligence built into a program I wrote. My way of collaborating with God so to speak. I like the way it came out. Hope you do too. The usual crunchy ambient sounds with drone, sound collage and some looping. Includes music of Akoustik Timbre Frekuency, Akumu, Argedco Dosig G Manin, Backyard Ghost, Barbara Schubert, Dupage Symphony Orchestra, Chris Carter, Cisfinitum, Cl...

|Sadayatana 088: Bizarre And Flawed - John Tocher|
I used to think I was the strangest person in the world but then I thought there are so many people in the world, there must be someone just like me who feels bizarre and flawed in the same ways I do. I would imagine her, and imagine that she must be out there thinking of me too. Well, I hope that if you are out there and read this and know that, yes, it's true I'm here, and I'm just as strange as you...
